Abstract: This thesis deals with the production of ethanol from used textiles. The process of simultaneous saccharification and fermentation is used to convert the cellulose molecules of the textile fabric into ethanol. In addition, the potential of textile biomass in Switzerland is analysed in this thesis, which allows the potential of ethanol produ tion from used textiles to be evaluated on a national level.
